Foreign Policy Research Institute A Nation Must Think Before it Acts Understanding Kissinger’s World Order

Understanding Kissinger’s World Order

About the Event

World Order by Henry Kissinger is arguably the most important book on international relations relations published in 2014, and its author remains one of the most important thinkers on the subject today – despite the fact that it has been decades since he has served as Secretary of State. Since Kissinger’s view of the world today is embedded in his larger perspective on world history, there are few people more equipped than FPRI’s Pultizer Prizewinning historian Walter McDougall to illuminate Kissinger’s thought.  McDougall’s books include Promised Land, Crusader State: The American Encounter with the World Since 1776.  He holds the Alloy-Ansin Chair in International Relations at UPenn.
